Golf

Swaffham Golf Club

Established in 1922 on a Norfolk Breckland Heath the club is an attractive and demanding experience, enjoyable by all standards of player. Some of the new holes were created from an area of mature woodland while others reflect the more open style of "The Brecks" and they have all matured to blend well with the older part of the course.
Individual visitors, societies and charity groups are all equally welcome to enjoy the charms of the course.
